Time to get ready—and excited—for a new anime season. You might know what you are excited to see, but here’s what anime fans in Japan are looking forward to watching.

Website Charapedia polled 10,000 anime fans in Japan, asking them which show they were more looking forward to. Out of that sample, 47.4 percent were men, while 52.6 percent were women and nearly 70 percent were in their teens and 20s with the rest above 30 years old.
